FSGB expands senior management team after successful first 12 months
The company, which delivers a comprehensive range of fleet management services, launched in spring last year based on a co-ownership business model.
The firm was launched by Marcus Bray, who with his father, Geoffrey Bray, and stepmother, Ina Bray, was instrumental in the growth of Fleet Support Group (FSG), which was acquired by United States headquartered ARI in 2011 and subsequently renamed ARI Fleet UK.
As FSGB nears the completion of its first year in business, the firm has announced that Geoffrey Bray steps up from FSGB non-executive to executive chairman and Janet Atkins, also a founder of FSG in its early stages as accounts director, becomes FSGB finance director.
The supporting management heads of departments are: Marcus Bray, who is responsible for all sales and marketing; Peter Hitt, head of operations; Sarah Clifford, head of service delivery; and Dominic Shearn, head of communications. Also joining the team as head of IT is Stephen Williams, who has 15 years’ IT experience gathered at both the Audit Commission and running his own Blue Monkey Software business.
Executive chairman Geoffrey Bray said: “As FSGB accelerates towards its second year of trading, the strengthening of the team allied to the ‘can do’ focus of the existing employees will further boost the confidence of fleets to do business with the company as it continues as a growing force in the UK fleet management industry.”
